DfES helps measure KS 2 internet proficiency

An Internet Proficiency Scheme for key stage 2 pupils has been set up by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES). Managed by Becta, it provides a teaching pack to support an interactive website on Gridclub, the national web service for primary-age children. Children get certificates to show they've successfully completed the scheme, which includes advice on the use of chatrooms, email and messaging (hosted by Griff, pictured left).You can get a free copy of the pack by emailing internetprof@becta.org.uk and you can download the teaching materials (and a presentation with advice for governors and parents) at www.gridclub.comcybercafeteachers The children's site is at: www.gridclub.comcybercafe Get more information on internet safety at: http:safety.ngfl.gov.uk
